With honeybee colonies and populations at an all-time low, it's important to take small, easy steps to help them survive. If you see a colony of bees in your garden this summer, help feed them by making a simple mixture of 1 part sugar and 1 part water. Heat it until the sugar is melted, cool it and pour it into a shallow bowl. Fill the bowl with marbles so that when bees come to feed on the sugary water, they won't drown -- the marbles give them an easy place to land. The bees will drink the sugary liquid, then fly off to turn it into honey. Replace the sugar water from time to time.
